TMA's biennial Physician Survey identifies emerging issues, tracks the impact of practice and economic changes, assesses physician priorities, and develops data to support TMA advocacy efforts. TMA has distilled the preliminary findings of one part of that survey into a two-page infographic that highlights Texas physicians' perceptions of the pros and cons of electronic health records (EHRs).
In May of 2016, TMA surveyed 38,340 physicians regarding their opinion and experiences with health information technology (HIT). The current survey is a benchmark of physicians' needs and experiences with EHRs, especially important as TMA tailors services and resources to help physicians qualify for federal incentives and avoid penalties related to EHR use.
